Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine treatment dating back to around 3,000 years ago that promotes mind and body balance. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to enhancing fertility is to strengthen the entire system, so that our bodies and overall health are at their peak when trying to achieve and sustain a healthy pregnancy.
Acupuncture treatment consists of the gentle insertion of tiny, sterile, disposable needles into specific points on the surface of the body that regulate the flow of Qi. Stimulation of key energy points are believed to regulate spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical balance, helping to restore our natural state of wellness.
Here at RMANJ our certified experts are trained in the healing arts of advanced acupuncture using traditional and laser acupuncture technology focused on the reproductive system. Laser acupuncture is a needle-free acupuncture treatment that stimulates key energy points of the reproductive system with a low-level laser beam. In a large prospective randomized control study conducted at RMANJ, laser acupuncture treatment performed pre-and-post embryo transfer during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle showed significant improvement in implantation rates compared to traditional needle acupuncture.1
Our Collaborative Wellness Team works alongside your Clinical Care Team to custom-design a course of treatment that is right for you. Often combining traditional therapies with advanced approaches, our team of experts are here to guide you in the healing process of restoring mind and body balance.
